Lots of White

Hello friends,

Another Christmas card for the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme for this challenge is “Lots of White”. The team has created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile and as always there is a lovely prize to win!

As this is my last post before Christmas I am wishing all my followers and blog friends a wonderful holiday season, have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!.

I used the white and green colours in the tile as inspiration for my card. For my card I decided to add texture by using an embossing folder with small speckles for one layer. I then layered the wreath on the embossed background, the embellished the wreath with a silver bow and lots of silver gemstones – I love the glittery effect. For a dash of colour I added 2 small red birds. The die cut sentiment is made of several layers glued together for dimension.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

    This is such a gorgeous and stunning card. I love the simplicity with the green on white, and that wreath is beautiful with the cute little red birds. They are the perfect final touch! Fabulous embossed background too, it works so well here.

    How beautiful those intricate die cuts are, and so pretty. Great idea to layer the white sentiment so it literally pops off the base!

    Thanks for sharing your Holiday Card with us at Cut it Up!
